    I am looking for input for a new TV. I want the best but am capped at $10,000 (or a little under).

    *** I am limited to a width of only 58 1/2"

    Thanks in advance.

    the pioneer elite is a remarkable display. Retail for the 61" is $7499, retail for the 50 inch is $5999. I do have a new in the box 50 " that I need to sell for $3999 (please email me if interested).

    I can't say anything for the Pioneer, but the Panasonic broadcast plasmas are very nice. The 65" is just a little too big - 61.2" wide - and the next one down that's a true 1080 display is one of their 50" displays, the TH-50PF10UK, listing at $3500.

    I would definitely be looking at the Samsung FP-T5894W 58" plasma. It retails for about $5800. If the wireless setup for this thing works as well as advertised it could make your installation significantly easier too.

    Check out the latest review of the Pioneer Elite Kuro plasma in the new Home Theater magazine issue. It's a quantum leap forward in display accuracy and black level/contrast. The color primaries can be calibrated to near perfection. This is the TV I would buy today if I had your budget.

    There are precious few consumer displays that can do color right. Some of the most popular sellers cannot do color correctly. They only offer over-saturated and/or inaccurate color primaries. Many folks like distorted color, but with your budget you can have a TV that delivers the colors intended by the program producers.

    Best regards and beautiful pictures,

    Thanks for the responses...

    I keep hearing the Pioneer Elite is the best but costly. Any reason other than price not to choose this TV.

    I spent some time watching a $7,500, 1080p, 60" Pioneer Elite (don't remember exact model #) last night at the store and I have to say I am somewhat glad I cannot afford it. The picture is so fantastic that I might not ever get off the couch. The Panasonics are a close second, but the Pioneer Elite are superb.
